I'm confused by the answer I got. The equation: 7x-2=4x I'm suppose to solve for x but I can't seem to get a realistic answer. The problem in my work book.(sorry for the image quality)

The problem in my work book.(sorry for the image quality) If $\displaystyle 7x - 2 = 4x$ $\displaystyle 3x = 2$ $\displaystyle x = \frac{2}{3}$ -Dan
The answer I originally came up with but it was -2/3 so I didn't think it was the right answer,I guess I was half right.Thank you.

7x -2 = 4x 7x-4x=2 3x =2 x = 2/3 simple.......
